Jeffrey Dorsey

My radio career began at KIEE-FM in Harrisonville, Missouri which later became KCFX in Kansas City. I worked there for 4 years before landing a position at WTAD and KHQA-TV here in Quincy doing a radio show and play-by-play sports. After doing TV Sports for KHQA, I worked for both WTAD and WQCY-FM (99Q). I joined WGEM as Operations Manager and then returned to WTAD as General Manager. In 2001 I joined Y101. I have been fortunate enough to win 6 Silver Dome Awards from the Illinois Broadcasters Association, including 5 for best Play-By-Play and one for Best Radio Show Entertainer. My favorite music is the Blues. The New York Yankees, Kansas City Royals, Kansas City Chiefs, and St. Louis Blues are my favorite teams. I played baseball for 24 years and my claim to fame is a double off of Rick Sutcliffe when we both played in Kansas City. Forty-two years later, I am still doing what I love.

Don’t Even Think About Stealing Items From the Moon!

When I rolled out of bed this morning, I stretched my arms toward the ceiling, yawned and thought..."Boy, I hope no one is thinking of stealing any memorabilia from the lunar surface".  Actually, the thought never crossed my mind, but apparently it crossed the mind of some congressman. I read where Congress a few years ago passed the Legacy Act. What is the Legacy Act you ask?
